  24. 24.  LIFE IS A LOT LIKE THAT WHEN YOU ARE A TEENAGER: LIKE IN CAMPINGS, WE WON’T BE ABLE TO PITCH A TENT UNLESS WE ARE PREPARED TO SLEEP W/O OUR COZY BEDS AND MATRESSES. IT’S NOT ALWAYS EASY. THERE WILL BE CHOICES TO MAKE AND OBSTACLES TO CONQUER. TO HANDLE THESE CHALLENGES IS TO FIND MORE ABOUT “YOURSELF”. KNOWING YOURSELF GIVES YOU SELF-CONFIDENCE YOU NEED. TO FACE THE FEARS AND OVERCOME OBSTACLES. KNOW YOURSELF. MAKE A CHOICE.

  30. 30. = whether we admit it or not . it’s happening. Even in the simplest things that we do. Like scouting, have you experienced boy scouts? Arguing with a topic, and was left speechless? threatened by their huge voice and body built?= if you weren’t just too afraid, you might have the better argument. If you have only shown it.= the problem is: girls: they are afraid Boys: they are over confident.
